Communities of Scholarship and Practice
A Community of Scholarship and Practice (CSP) at Walden University is a CRS-sponsored eCampus group that supports faculty and student interactions around a topical area. CSPs can range from a small, by-invitation-only group of scholars working on a focused project, to a large, open-invitation community for all interested members of the academic community.
To Find a CSP
- Log into your myWalden University Portal.
- Under the Campus Life tab, click on the All Communities link on the left-hand side.
- Scroll through the Academics section of the list until you see communities that start with "CSP:" Please note that only "public" CSPs are viewable from within the eCampus all-communities list. If a CSP is "private", you will need to email the owner, and ask that he/she add you to the community.
- In a public CSP, use the "Request To Join" button on the top right, and follow the instructions.
